Chris Andersen has been accurate in the past with uncovering important phenomena associated with technology advancement, consumer demand and general business economics i.e. the long tail. I think he is very right again with the potential impact of custom fabrication and DIY design and manufacturing. He brings his ideas to light with many relevant examples.
It does for manufacturing and design what "The Long Tail" did for retail.
Also has similarities to "Wikinomics" by Don Tapscot.
Not much. Pretty standard narration.
No. It just made me think.
Great for entrepreneurs thinking about finding an opportunity in an emerging wave of change.

Best audio book I have listened to thus far (along with Born to Run).
The description of the relationships between the crew members and how they depend on each other and learn to trust each other. The description of "swing" in the eight oared boat.
Very east listening. Good pace and expression.
